I would like to share (with her permission) a recipe for a protein smoothie that I got from a local nutritionist. She has counselled family and friends and gets high praise. I like this recipe because it works for the child (or adult) who is fruit averse, or generally averse to anything unusual, but who would benefit from having a protein rich breakfast or snack to replace a sugary carb load. It is quick to make and can be consumed in the car running late to work or school.
I saw a video on Men's Health the other day titled "6 Protein Myths:". After watching it I felt like it lacked depth and by not addressing some of the information I was doing a disservice to all who followed that page. The following is my observation.
Misconception #1:"Protein Builds Muscle" The first myth is kind of common sense. Contrary to popular belief protein doesn't build muscle. Protein is what your muscle is made of.
Protein shakes are famous these days. There are green ones, red ones, chocoate one, vegan ones and whey ones. But if you are loading them up with lots of fruit, protein powder, yogurt, oils and everything else, you are probably pretty frustrated and gaining weight. A typical shake has 20-25 grams of protein, which can be 1/3 to 1/2 protein requirement for the day for alot of people. At the end of the day, calories do count. Sorry guys! Most people are taking in too much fat and sugar for in their shakes, more than enough for the entire day. They are meal replacments typically, not snacks.
Are you Vegan or Vegetarian? We have Vegan shake that you'll love! It is chocked full of protein, 20g per serving, Fruits and Veggies! I am not Vegan and I love it! It's a great source of nutrients packed into 1 Shake. Take a Look at this short video!http://JenniferGiroux.idlife.com/sl/12b3f280-592e-4b63-88c4-f1c6b71da2bb jennifergiroux.idlife.com
Fitness supplements you must have is our topic.Whether you choose to use them for bodybuilding, performance enhancement or just general health, supplements are just as normal in today’s society as drinking water on a hot and humid summer day, lol!At one point in time (long ago), there was not a need for everyone to include supplements in their daily eating habits. However, because of our busy lifestyles, poor food sources and the mass production of food, our food is not as rich in vitamins and nutrients as it was 60-70 years ago.
